I've had some recent changes in my mindset about Agave Nectar. It appears that the high fructose in agave is just as bad for you as HFCS. There have also been reports of adulteration in order to fulfill the demand. It's low glycemic only because the fructose goes through the liver to break it down so there's a smaller insulin spike to take care of the smaller glucose load. However, anyone with diabetes or pre-diabetes will still suffer in the long run with other problems. A little is okay but I wouldn't use it for everything. If you want a sweetener that is low glycemic try stevia or one of the RebA products. Stevia has been around for a long time. The only worry I have about the new RebA products is the filler that is used with it. It should be fine for a normally healthy person but we don't know how someone with a leaky gut may be affected...if it causes diarrhea or any other problems. I do like it but if you can get by without sweetened foods you may be better off.
